Gol To Add More EZE Services (EZE-GRU / EZE-GIG)

Thu Nov 23, 2006 9:28 pm

Gol is really becoming a major player on South American market.

Yesterday they just announce another major expansion on EZE market to begin on December 4th 2006.

Two new daily flights to Buenos Aires will be added to it's network (nowadays 3 GIG-GRU-EZE and 1 FLN-POA-EZE), another one begin in GRU (dedicated), and the first one GIG-EZE non-stop. The flight Rio-Buenos Aires probably during the weekend will probably include very soon a stop at Cabo Frio (closer to Buzios).

Buenos Aires seems to be THE destination of this summer (IATA winter) and the fight for this market become even stronger with a new player (Lan Argentina) and more services from AR, Tam and Gol.

The new flights with 737-700:

G3 7450 Daily GRU 0800 EZE 0950
G3 7482 Daily EZE 1030 GIG 1430
G3 7483 Daily GIG 1600 EZE 1820
G3 7451 Daily EZE 1900 GRU 2240

During the night the plane will be used on a GRU-MCZ-AJU-GIG flight (another ship will fly GIG-AJU-MCZ-GRU) adding to G3 network one night flight GIG-AJU-GIG and one GRU-MCZ-GRU.

Varig also will announce more services to EZE very soon (REC-SSA-GIG-EZE probably will be resumed)

Tks, for the news, Lipe! Good to see the EZE-GIG nonstop market growing.

Quoting LipeGIG (Thread starter):
Two new daily flights to Buenos Aires will be added to it's network (nowadays 3 GIG-GRU-EZE and 1 FLN-POA-EZE)

This flights will change and operations will be FLN-POA-EZE-SCL, linking the Argentinian and Chilean market to South Brazil. It also represents a further growth of GOL in Chile.

Felipe,

Any idea why it is taking so long for Varig to obtain the CHETA and officially become an airline.

Just seems to me that it is taking longer than it should. Thanks.

Quoting Hardiwv (Reply 1):

You're right Hardi, also 1 GIG-GRU-EZE will be extended to SCL, and 1 GIG-GRU-EZE will become CNF-GRU-EZE-SCL while Gol will run GIG-GRU-SCL.

Gol operations (departures) at EZE by the end of the year:

GRU - 4 daily (2 GRU-GIG, 1 GRU-CNF, 1 dedicated)
SCL - 3 daily
POA - 1 daily (POA-FLN)
GIG - 1 daily

And not to forget about ROS and COR fligths.

Quoting Mpdesa (Reply 2):

Mpdesa it's not interesting to Varig during some time to delivery the documents to ANAC and begin counting the time to run all the international network without a single aircraft commitment. AFAIK during this time Varig is trying to get aircrafts to run most of the flights up to 180 days after they get the CHETA (Airline Certification for whom may don't know) as per our rules. Now it's clear they can get some 767 from AC as well as other sources not informed (and still unclear).

As per ANAC comments, the CHETA will be released during the first 15 days of December.

...and GOL expansion never ends...more high season flights to Argentina POA-EZE, POA-ROS and POA-COR:

G3 9630/73G/123456-/POA0040/EZE0125
G3 9631/73G/123456-/EZE0400/POA0630
G3 9632/733/------7/POA2350/ROS0040
G3 9634/733/-2-4---/POA2350/COR0110

G3 9633/733/1------/ROS0500/POA0730
G3 9635/733/--3-5--/COR0440/POA0730

LIM now of official and more flights to MVD:

LIM (starting January/07)
G3 7476/738/1234567/GIG2030/GRU2130-2200/LIM0010
G3 7477/738/1234567/LIM0050/GRU0820-0850/GIG0950
[second flight to LIM to follow in 2007, expected route GRU-LIM-SCL-LIM-GRU]

MVD (starting December/06)
G3 7488/738/1234567/GRU1315/POA1445-1515/MVD1635
G3 7489/738/1234567/MVD1705/POA1820-1850/GRU2020

GRU-EZE has grown substantially, amazing numbers! GOL never stops its expansion.

In additionm, GOL also got authorisation to run a selection of new domestic flights such as GRU-GIG-BEL, GRU-FOR (2 daily), GIG-REC-JPA, CGB-GRU, GRU-NAT (this is GOL 3rd daily on this route!!!), GIG-AJU-MCZ....

Although GRU is still GOL's international hub, GOL's domestic operations in GIG are growing very fast. GOL keeps 5 daily GIG-REC while TAM only runs one daily.

Hardi, LIM probably will be postponed, but nothing confirmed yet.

Also BOG and MEX probably will begin on February, 07.

And during 2007 we will see Gol flying to Ecuador and also to CCS. They are very close to fly to all South American countries.
